Wurkkos WK02: Ready for the graveyard shift?

Since Wurkkos advertises the light for nursing homes I was highly motivated to put it right into the action:

Kewl…

Was it my imagination or was that light a nice dark coffee-brown?

Yes, coffee-brown. Although people in my profession might describe the color in different terms Wink

Huh… I just goggled it on Amazon, and they call it “gold”.

That’s… odd.

Advertised for nursing homes? For the staff or residents? Nonetheless, nice review Markus.

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

Well, coffee brown is actually called "desert tan" according to the manual. Big Smile There are myriads of color tones in desert sand, so it's not wrong anyway. Silly However, brown might be a good name for future lights with this anodizing color. I really like it. Markus, as usual, hats off to your great video review. Thumbs Up Beer

Last time I checked I was still counted as staff. Let me have a look again…;-)

Thank you! DO NOT name anything you advertise for nursing homes “brown”. Call it “desert XYZ” or whatever floats your boat but accept the fact that no one will wear a “brown” item on his white uniform. Now I do not wear a uniform but shirts as I work in a ward specialized in patients suffering from heavy forms of dementia. We don’t do uniform style work attire or anything that reminds people too much of a hospital setting. But generally speaking “brown” is questionable. Call it “golden brown” or “desert sunset brown” if you have to. It is a beautiful light BTW. Wink
